Physiotherapy Department

Advice for Patients having Physiotherapy

1. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes (no open-toed or open-heeled shoes).

2. Patients having hip replacements need some equipment and aids for home:
a) A toilet seat raiser.
b) An Easy reacher.
c) A long shoe horn.
d) An orthopaedic chair.
These are available for purchase in the Physiotherapy Department. If patients have medical cards, they are entitled to the above equipment free. It is necessary to contact your local health board well in advance.

3. Patients after total hip replacement, total knee replacement and anterior cruciate ligament repair, are able to manage stairs on discharge.
